Ripley Castle: Danielle And Benjamin’s Perfect Day At Ripley Castle

10 July 2018
By Sarah Adams

Danielle and Benjamin met more than five years ago when they were introduced through friends on an evening out in Leeds. Since this moment the couple have spent most weekends together, and it was during this time that they came to find their future wedding venue.

“We chose Ripley Castle, as it is somewhere we like to visit on a weekend. The first time we visited, long before we were engaged, we noticed a wedding there and commented on what a lovely venue it was, so it was the perfect choice a few years later. We wanted a venue that we could return back to. We were so well looked after at both our church and at Ripley Castle.”

Danielle and Benjamin wanted a wedding that was completely personal to them. “We wanted to be able to speak to each and every guest during our wedding, yet we didn’t want to have to restrict numbers. We chose to have a receiving line and a spaced out wedding breakfast so that we were able to do this. We didn’t have a theme for our wedding we just wanted everyone to be able to have fun and enjoy themselves, which we hope they did. Hopefully the Wedding was personal to us and our family and friends from all the personalized details we added.”

The couple chose Kirsty of Kirsty Mattsson Photography, to capture their special day. “We went to a wedding fair at Ripon Cathedral and saw lots of photographers, however, Kirsty’s display really caught our eye as she had captured some lovely natural moments. We spoke to her and soon decided she would be our photographer at our wedding.”
